2019 Artist Line Up

SatOne

@satone_satone_satone 
There is a rare serenity in SatOne art. He is an artist from Germany who is inspired by much more than just his immediate surroundings, following the many travels he had undertaken so far. Abstract in nature, his art is, in fact, an expression of sensitivity present in objects, but which can be ‘seen’ only on an instinctive level. The colorful sensuality of his works, continues the artist’s narration of exquisiteness hiding from direct observation, being sensed only through reflection.

Peeta

He is a member of the EAD crew (Padova, Italy), FX and RWK crews (New York City) and has participated over the years in jams, festivals and art shows all over the world. His work explores the potential of sculptural lettering and anamorphism, both in painting and in sculpture.

Lucy Lucy

@lucylucyone
Currently residing in Melbourne, French-Parisian born artist Lucy Lucy has graciously carved her niche in the Australian urban art community. Her work moves between large-scale public murals, gallery work, tribal ornaments and bespoke fashion.  She has been painting murals and exhibiting in France, the US, Canada, Thailand, Australia, and the UK.

Her paintings capture the evolving folklore of the feminine, exploring the diversity and boundaries of heritage. Whether a sovereign queen, a mystic sorceress, a youthful muse, or a charismatic lady, all share in the art and privilege of being a woman. More recently, Lucy has beenexploring the concepts of presence and perception through imaginary masks enfolding women portraits. The concealing veneers echo with the idea that rarely oneself is entirely present or is able to see reality as it is

Sam Songailo

@samsongailo 
Sam Songailo's work takes form in painting, installation, video, sound and sculpture. He is deeply influenced by digital technology and electronic music, adopting algorithms and concepts from these disciplines that shape his approach to both physical and pictorial space. Often highly immersive on a monumental scale, his work accentuates the compositional elements of line and space in a form that recalls both modernist grid and digital networks.
